What 4° really means…

Climate Central have produced some terrifying images showing cities around the world after 4° of warming and 2° of warming.  I’ve included the photo of London, and you can also use their interactive mapping tool to see exactly what it will mean for your location. Below I’ve included the map for Brigg, my local town in North Lincolnshire, after 2° of warming – it will pretty much wipe out the town, and much of the agricultural land around it.  Remember, 2° is what we are aiming for at Paris, with current commitments, we are going to go beyond this.  This is why Paris is so important – we are quickly reaching the point at which increasing temperature cannot be reversed.
